Karuizawa 1999 - 14yo - The Last Bottling

Nope, not the last bottling but seemingly the last bottling for the retailer Isetan. Fourteen years old and bottled at 60.5% cask strength.

  • Nose: Sherry and oak, quite fruity, cinnamon and oranges
  • Mouth: Sherry with more of a PX feel, sweet with butterscotch candy and with a tad tannins, without water it has a creamy mouthfeeling
  • Finish: Fruity, sherry, warm and with some woods at the very end. Generally quite accessible for a Karuizawa
Comments: Smooth and accessible without the roughness some other young Karuizawas sometimes have.

85 points
